  • Honor 7X

Huawei's sub-brand on Tuesday launched the Honor 7X in India at the starting price of Rs 12,999. The smartphone, which delivers full-screen viewing experience, will retail at AED 999.

Billed as the world's first AI (Artificial Intelligence) smartphone, the Honor V10 boasts a 5.99 inch screen and also has an 18:9 shaped display, giving a wider view.

The rear camera setup on the Honor View 10 sports two sensors - one 16-megapixel RGB sensor and the other a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, complete with an f/1.8 aperture, PDAF, dual-LED flash. Honor 7X embeds its very own 64-bit, Octa-core Kirin 659 processor clocked at 2.36 GHz with Mali-T830 MP2 GPU.

Zhao said that Honor is the top smartphone e-brand in China in 2017 in terms of sales performance. In the front, a 13-megapixel shooter with f/2.0 aperture has been provided for selfies.

After many years of complaints about Huawei's smartphone cameras, the company has really turned around their cameras on all of their smartphones, even mid-range offerings like the Honor 7X.

That's pretty impressive for a phone of this price (which we'll get onto later). This is the version that will be available in the United States, whereas Europe will get a more advanced model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The View 10 will launch with both Android 8.0 and version 8.0 of Huawei's EMUI interface - the same setup the Mate 10 Pro is debuting with.

The Honor View 10 uses USB Type-C for charging and supports NFC. As we have already made few articles about this topic, now we know the most important thing, that is the pricing. The smartphone is the second by the company to sport the 18:9 FullView display trend, after the Honor 9i was launched two months ago. The Honor View10 comes powered by the top-tier Kirin 970 SoC mated to 6GB of RAM. The Honor 7X comes in Blue, Gold and Black finishes. The phone has a dual camera with rear ones housing a 20MP and 16MP sensors. While the Honor 7X is fueled by a 3,340mAh battery, the Xiaomi Mi A1 comes with a 3,080mAh battery, whereas the Moto G5S Plus comes with a 3,000mAh one.

As for connectivity, the Honor V10 packs in the usual flagship-grade connectivity options, but brings something new with dual 4G and dual VoLTE standby. The onboard storage of the device is 128GB, which can be further expanded through a microSD slot.

The View 10 will use the 13MP front facing camera for facial unlock. Honor claims that its fast charging technology can charge the battery up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.
